    You need to remember where you came from, as well as being aware you’re headed to as you go through life, according to Indiana Farm Bureau 2nd Vice President Isabella Chism.
    Chism lives in Galveston (near Gas City in north central Indiana) with her husband Kent, and has three adult children. They raise corn and soybeans on their farm.
    Chism said that it takes three things to live the good life: persistence, patience, and pride in what you do.
    She asked the audience, “How many of you are activists?”
    Several people raised their hands, and she said, “Every one of you are activists. It means you’re out doing something.”
    Chism was born in Austria, and immigrated over to the United States with her parents when she was six years old. Her father had been a school teacher in Austria before they came over to the US.
    She said that whatever she has done in life or whatever has happened to her in life throughout the years, she truly believes that “every one of us has the seed to be what we are to be.”

NH Board hears of interest free loan Federal Stimulus Funds PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Wednesday, 19 August 2009 00:00
    North Harrison interim Supt. Randy Barrett informed the Board of School Trustees Thursday night that with Federal Stimulus Funds, an interest free loan could be possible, if the administration applies for the funds. The funds for this type of loan are controlled by the states, and the Indiana Dept. of Education would be the organization giving the loan out.
    Barrett stressed the interest free aspect of the loan to the members of the North Harrison Board of School Trustees.
    “This bond is unique, in that there is no interest (charged),” said Barrett.
    The payback time would be 15 to 16 years, and only the amount of the original loan would need to be paid back, according to Barrett.
    In another matter regarding finances, Barrett cautioned that the North Harrison Community School Corporation lost $107 million in assessed evaluation. The amount of money raised by the school corporation in tax levies will actually be higher, due to the tax rates being higher.

All-R-Stars Camp at Highland Hills has been big success PDF Print E-mail

    The All-R-Stars Tennis Camp at Highland Hills Middle School near Galena has been a success by all accounts. Brandon Miller, 34, who played boys’ tennis at Floyd Central High School for his father, longtime boys’ and girls’ varsity tennis coach Rick Miller, has been holding the camp at the school’s tennis courts since the first week of June. The camp was to have run through today (Wednesday, August 12), and quite a few kids have spent at least a few days at the camp. The participants (middle school and high school age) plunked down $10 per day for instruction in the camp.
    Miller almost lived at the school during the nine or so weeks of the camp, but that is fine with him.
    “This makes me feel like a kid; to be associated with these kids’ day in and day out,” he said during a lull in the action Monday, shortly after noon.
    Miller said that over the course of the camp, he gets a few new participants every week.
    The camp is not open only to students that attend Highland Hills or Floyd Central, but to everyone in the community. As an example, Miller said he has one girl who attends the Louisville Latin School.
     Once the camp is over fro the year on August 12, Junior Team Tennis starts up, and is sanctioned by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). This will be at Floyd Central High School’s courts, since they have 10 courts to the 10 at Highland Hills Middle School. This is held on Thursdays from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and on Sundays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. this is ongoing throughout the fall, until it gets cold. This is to get participant’s feet moving, and eye-hand coordination improving. Eight game pro sets will be employed, and will have singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.
